I went to Boston with my dad for my 11th birthday to watch two Red Sox games and watch the Boston Marathon. I was there not only for my birthday, but to celebrate this great day with the whole city. I was a half mile away from the marathon finish line and left 5 minutes before the bombs went off. I was lucky... sadly, others were not. I feel the need to contribute because I was there and I know how scary it is to be so close to a situation like that. Imagine how it must have felt to be one of the people injured or killed by the explosions. That is why I hope to raise 300 dollars for those that have been affected by this terrible massacre.
